I had a chronic case of the runs about two months ago now. Worst I had in years. Could barely eat a bit of toast for days. Any liquid went straight through.
How much liquid did you put through?

Re: Wave models

I looked at the forecasts last night for yesterday arvo and they were both about the same, except for the arrival of the new swell. Surfline and surf forecast were forecasting an open ocean swell of around 1.6m@14 seconds (at -9, 115 for Surfline). Surfline also provided an estimated wave height bas...

I went to primary school there for a small amount of time. Good memories of low tide sand flats in the channel. Soldier crabs, hermit crabs, mangrove bits

Re: Where did you surf today ?

This thread has nearly brought a tear to my eye. I haven't surfed since the last school holidays. You can definitely get in a downward spiral, making it even harder to raise the effort to go out. Other forms of exercise help in the short term. Try an overnighter AJ. Late arvo surf, sleep in your car...

Re: Ears

If you get proper ear plugs from an audiologist, you won't have any more issues (provided you happy to wear them). The exostosis won't get any worse and no more ear infections.

Re: Ears

It's likely exostosis. The narrowed canal causes water to get stuck, leading to infections. So either get them drilled or get proper ear plugs.

The 0.01 is derived from the 0.1 differential. 5 judges score. Highest and lowest discarded. Score is the mean of the 3 retained
Eg. 9.1 8.9 9.1 9.2 9.3
8.9 & 9.3 discarded
(9.1 + 9.1 + 9.2) / 3 = 9.13
You are welcome

Re: princess margaret river pro

But what do the viewers want to see? Personally, a speed run by a super talent to set up a couple of turns or a tube is way better than 50 vertical snaps.

Re: princess margaret river pro

I agree with the assessment of the locations against the WSL scoring criteria. But what's interesting is that not all the locations considered to meet the criteria, are the best viewing IMHO. You need the dreamy or critical waves first, then the competition is the icing on the cake to make it worthw...

Re: wetsuit

My young kids all have Aldi wetsuits. They are only flat lock springsuits, but the neoprene is supple and the seams have held together.
